Phillis won this event back in 2006 with a drive of 326 yards and was runner-up in 2007 and 2008 where on this occasion she happened to lose on the final ball of the day which made this win even more rewarding. It has clearly been a long time between victories for the 29-year-old as she decided to concentrate on her playing career, but this is her first win as a professional after taking the plunge to the top level in 2009.
This victory was all the more special as she dedicated the win to her number one supporter and late father who sadly passed away last year.
"This was hugely special to me as my Dad passed away and this kept me at home, away from the game because I wanted to spend as much time with the family as I could."
The humble Kiwi won't be changing anything after her famous victory as she returns to work on Monday as per usual.
Metis next event is the Anita Boon Pro-Am in New Zealand where she will test herself against some of Australasia's best golfing talents.
